science positions every year in the united states cannot be filled by available american workforce positions. and i have positions that need to be filled so that our technology industry can continue to thrive. simply put, u.s. based companies have a great need for those trained in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. but at least right now there are not enough americans trained and ready to fill these jobs. we cannot continue to simply hope that american companies do not move operations to countries where they have greater access for individuals trained in these s.t.e.m. fields. we cannot continue to ignore this problem. it's that simple. continued in action -- especially since the american enterprise institute has confirmed 100 foreign-born workers with s.t.e.m. degrees create an average of 262 additional jobs for nativeborn workers. let me tell you, these countries would love to have the american educated ph.d's and other highly educated individuals return and boost their economies. not only from their acquired skills, but also by creating these new jobs as well.

and county of san francisco where i handled domestic violence cases and nienl years as an assistant united states attorney here in the northern district of california where ironically handled domestic violence case in the presidio which isn't the typical jurisdiction matter but more importantly i'm a husband and a father of a daughter and this is important and in light of the current events that have taken place it's important that the two commissions get together to affirm our commitment to combating domestic violence and protecting witnesses and candidly this couldn't be a better time. today i received the san francisco attorney, the magazine from the bar association, and the cover of the magazine is "domestic violence, not a cookie cutter approach" and they interviewed two attorneys and i know both but no prosecution interviewed, no police department involved in the interview, and it's essentially taking us back 10 steps. all of the hard work put in by the da's office and this article i was bothered by it and i think there should be response to the article and i think tonight is the

in graffiti and i have done everything from being an officer to being a supervisor of the unit, to be a supervisor of multi-agency units dealing with it, to being the executive director for the entire state california state association of graffiti inspectors. so i have a fair amount of background. i was first involved in 1991 in the gang unit to deal with the guys called taggers. i continued with that until i retired last june. so it was a long two weeks. it's kind of typical, because a lot of times jurisdictions don't understand how deep the issue is when it comes to graffiti. i am a certified instructor and teach officers on this area. i have had my card handed out. this is my phone number. i have absolutely no problem with people calling me any time to discuss graffiti issues, graffiti cases. any of that stuff, i'm always available. that is why i put my card out there. so first off, before we get into the graffiti program we have to talk about the person who is going to be dealing with graffiti when he gos to court. i understand from my experience that personnel and train

in places around the world and there has been an impact to many municipallalities around the united states and ballot more is actually secretary a settlement with the banks to be able to recover funds that were lost and there were municipals in the bay area and san jose that are looking to recover a possible fund as well and this hearing is asking our financial advisers in the city to assess what the impact is to san francisco and later, we could decide whether we want to join other cities and counties around the country and any kind of senilitiment we could find but most of all, it's important know that many municipallalities were effected and many are imposing austerity in how they do their service and is carry out services and thankfully we are not doing that in san francisco but it's important to look at our own finance and is work with other cities around the country in order to find some recompetence if it's necessary. my last item to action is introducing an ordinance to create the outer mission commercial district will extend along mission street from 280 down to the san matt at a
to attribute that to a joint effort by the scu unit as well as the district attorney's office. the first point of real contact that dv victims have are the inspectors and svu. once inspectors make the initial contact that is where the trust begins. once that trust is established it is turned over to our office where our attorneys try to maintain that trust. honestly, with a number of attorneys that we have it is very difficult to maintain that. as we know it is not just the perpetrators who continue to have power and control over the victims but there are families and relatives out there for the defendants who also apply a lot of pressure on the victims. i think that one of the most crucial points in prosecuting dv cases is when the victim begins to turn away from us, the prosecution. i honestly believe t we need more resources because at that point in time it is not a matter of us letting these cases go. i think we have defined other means to be able to pursue these cases even when victims don't always cooperate or even when they don't come in to testify i have to believe that

the election. on the other hand we seem to be here in the united states helping morsi selling military equipment to him as we speak. what do we make of morsi? >> well, morsi is the first democratically elected president that egypt has ever had. he did not win by a large margin but did he win. instead of trying to governor in a consensus fashion recognizing that he did not win by a large margin recognizing that there still isn't a parliament, there are going to be elections later this spring, instead of trying to put together a national unity government, having opposition forces in his cabinet and so for the, he has governed as a muslim brother. he has the religious right in all the key positions and he has alienated people this way. >> cenk: it's really interesting because on the other hand israel seems to be fairly happy with him, so are we. we send in more aid and military weapons to help him. that's something you might not necessarily expect. he's deep muslim brotherhood in domestic policies of egypt, but externally seems to be saying the right things. >> externally he has not rocke

intensive care unit, nurses to lots of care for various patients and they do it well, so why not? the answer is it's impossible in many cases to fit what nurses do into billing codes so you can get paid for it. what you pay for you get and we've got a system that has evolved that has been responsive for what we paid for. if you're going to move from a transaction-based system, in my opinion, to a longitudinal care model of primary care, then you have to move away from transaction-based payment and discrete payment and moved to budgeted payments, longitudinal payments to take care of patients for a period of time without regard to what the billing for the individual service is u.k. and then let providers,.yours, nurses and others and that they how they approach care of their patients without the shackles of being limited by what billing codes well and will not allow for in my opinion. >> any outcomes that appear in washington because i can't find anyone with these ideas to go to when i go to see my doctor. i think that's part of the problem, patients are frustrated. if you see a good model, y

million people in the united states, one in five americans, cannot see a doctor when they need to. lack of access to a primary care provider is a national problem, but those most impacts are people who are low income, minorities, seniors, and people who live in rural communities whether it's vermont or wyoming. as we've seen time and time again with dental care, mental health, and other health care issues, the groups that lead -- need health care the most are the least likely to receive it. the good news is just 11 months from now we'll be providing health insurance to 30 million more americans through the affordable care act. the bad news is we don't know how we are going to be providing primary health care to those americans who now have health insurance. let me rattle off some statistics that i think should be of concern for the congress, and, in fact, for all americans. not widely known, and maybe you'll talk about it, but approximately 45,000 people every single year die in the united states of america because they do not have health insurance, and they do not get to a doctor on ti
